Food and drink roundup (11-29-2004 edition)

The usual food and drink roundup that we normally post on Thursday is making a belated appearance today, as it just didn’t seem worth posting while everyone was enjoying (or not enjoying) turkey leftovers.

Now that we’re sick of those leftovers, here’s the usual roundup.

It’s a double shot from Robb Walsh this week, who says fajitas are the way to go at Herrera’s Mexicatessen. Whether you go with bacon or not is a purely personal decision, he notes. Walsh also checks in on La Tour d’Argent, reopened under the direction of chef Cedric Guerin, who is hopeful the boycotts that wrecked the local French culinary scene for a while are well behind us.

Alison Cook pays a visit to Arcodoro, where it’s imported fall truffle time. For those after less sophisticated — or at least expensive — fare, I might recommend the pizza at Arcodoro, which I’ve greatly enjoyed in the past. Then again, if pizza’s what you’re after, you might just as well head to Kenneally’s, which serves a fine pizza in a relaxed Irish pub atmosphere.

If you’re just in the mood for a sandwich, Ken Hoffman has the lowdown on the Subway Toasted Meatball Marinara sub, which is not, with its 126 grams of carbs, for followers of the late Dr. Atkins.

Finally, Dai Huynh visits west Houston’s Java Coffee & Tea Co., while Lance Walker checks out the Six Degrees Lounge downtown.
